The world’s highest fidelity non-custom earplugs. Developed in conjunction with Etymotic, Vic Firth Earplugs are configured to replicate the natural response of the ear canal so that sound is reproduced exactly as the ear would hear it, only quieter. Clarity of speech and richness of music are preserved rather than muffled. 20db sound reduction across all frequencies. Heavy-duty neck cord and carrying case included.
